About:

I am a maker who is curious and open about the materials I use and the fields I specialise in, at the moments I'm working with 3D printing technology and traditional ceramics. Also, I am learning about fractals, processing and generative art. Making, material engagement and interaction with our environment feeds us with knowledge and allows us to better understand, evaluate and critique the world around us. This engaging and playful approach is the centre of which my design practice is build around. I believe a thorough understanding of materials and the process of making allows us to innovate and create design solutions more natural and tangible to our being. This is achieved through challenging the potential of materials and craftsmanship. Curiosity and artistic thinking combined with a working methodology that encourages collaboration and experimentation. Email : [email protected]

Unique vessels made using 3d printed technology to create luxurious finished pieces. Showing that materials can made precious through the process used to create them and how additive manufacturing can be used to create object of a luxury standard and everyday use. The incorporation of handmade ceramic pieces brings order and familiarity to the chaotic forms, blending together new technology and traditional craft. The character of my design will demonstrate and questions current technology whilst showing an emphasis on the value of craft and material exploration.’ Approximate dimensions of each vessel: Length 160mm x Width 140mm x Height 140mm
